Game release: “Armello” (PC)

After reviewing the The Witcher Adventure Game, my appetite was wet for other digital board games, and League of GeeksArmello might just be the right substitute.

The similarities between CD Projekt RED’s title and Armello are quite obvious with the turn-based planning process, rolling dice for actions/fights and a colorful presentation of the world they take place in. Only in League of Geeks’ game, it’s animals who fight, their main objective being to become king or queen of the land of Armello.

As it’s the case with tabletop games, playing with other people is the most fun, ideally with friends one can communicate with, as waiting for turns can get quite tiresome. But that’s the crux of any board game. Going on quests, leveling up, collecting and using cards to progress is all part of the experience. Procedurally generated maps also make each playthrough different.

Most impressive is how lovely the game looks, with an almost dream-like landscape of warm colors to traverse and varied character designs to look at and choose from. In addition, the hand-drawn cutscenes are also a visual treat. If story and characters are engaging enough I can’t say, but even The Witcher Adventure Game was a lot of fun despite the lack of a coherent story and repetitive gameplay. So this is certainly an interesting take on the digital board game genre.
